Similarities and Difference Between Holden and Me
Transcript of Similarities and Difference Between Holden and Me
Really good at lying
I am intellectually competent, Holden probably is too, but does not want to reveal it.
We both love those we think that matter
the world is filled with "phonies"
Love for books
Foolhardy at times Not open to growth Not intellectually competent,
or he just doesnt show it Not very compassionate, committed has problems with socializing with others For all of these about Holden, they may have come from the lack of a proper childhood and the effects of his brother's death, which caused him to shut down or hide away; therefore, it caused him to not grow mentally and socially. Loves to try new things, Freezes under pressure At least tries to show some
intellectual competence For hobbies or anything, if enjoyed, is very committed to it Loves to talk with new people... not fight Does better under pressure We can conclude from holden's vague description of his past that something caused him to put himself into a shell. in turn, his mind cannot stretch or grow out like the majority. Sources Greene, Graham. "The Burden of Childhood." DISCovering Authors. Detroit: Gale, 2003. Gale Student Resources In Context. Web. 25 Apr. 2011. Salinger, J D. The Catcher in the Rye. Boston: Little, Brown, 2001. Print. I relate to Holden by:
having parents and a sister
being a teen, we experience the same things, I understand some of the feelings he has
we have both gone through difficult times and it is twice as difficult for a child
we both love to make stories or aliase My world is similar to Holden:
We have an enormous amount of pressure from others to conform into the majority
Social pressure My world is different:
I learned to get over things instead of holding onto them
I want to always look on the bright side
I follow the conformity but know when I want to leave it
I did not go through such a traumatic event as him
